When questioned why Solo didn’t tell anyone about the dance pro’s alleged physical abuse of her before she released her tell-all memoir, Solo claims that until she started writing the book, she didn’t have the self confidence to tell her story to the world. She also states that “everyone knows I speak the truth.”
Solo, who has been the goal keeper for the gold medal winning U.S. Women’s Soccer team, has made more headlines for her controversial statements, both before and during the Olympic games than for her play on the field. I had hoped that on the back of her outstanding performance in the Olympic final, that maybe she’d settle for whatever fame being a soccer player would bring her, but it seems Solo is determined to keep running her mouth.
While I can certainly buy that Maks isn’t the nicest guy in the world to work with, I just don’t see Solo as having any credibility and her explanation for waiting until her memoir to make these accusations just doesn’t ring true. Even if it was true, how selfish would it be to withhold this information, while Maks is being paired up with other potential “victims?”
